The Principality of Arunity is a small, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 26 million Arunityians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Arunityian economy, worth 488 billion fortunas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,784 fortunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and the armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arunity's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arunity is ranked 172,123rd in the world and 81st in Refugia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 1.06 Kickbacks Per Hour.
